    Hope this isn't too presumptuous of me as a new player to suggest but seeing how well the guild gets together for PvE as well as PvP stuff, I was thinking perhaps one night we could attempt a 'NICE Invasion of Orr'. Basically we roll into the Straits of Devastation and attempt to simultaneously achieve all three Invasion routes for a big old fight at the Cathedral of Glorious Victory. Then we follow that up by liberating any of the other four temples that other players haven't done so at the time and see if we can end it all with the Gates Of Arah event. Maybe we won't get that far but it'd be cool if we made the run to the Arah WP for anyone who hasn't gotten it yet a little NICE-er by shutting down all the statues.

    So, when we used to do this, it didn't seem to help the event to have more than 1 invasion join the fray. It raises their morale, but gives you even MORE squishy NPCs to keep alive during the event....not a net win usually. Also, the northern invasion is by sea and has some straight up awful underwater battles leading up to it.

    May I suggest that you scale back to just the southern invasion, and if it goes well try the other routes at later date? Coordinating all 3 at once is brutal and everyone will gravitate toward the easy path anyway, so you'll end up suffering through the underwater stuff while all your friends skip up the southern route and beat you to it.......or at least that's what happened to me when I tried this. ;)

    If you propose a date and time, people will show up! These chains are lucrative, lots of people need obsidian shards for crafting these days, and there's always getting waypoints on an alt. I'd probably come on my ele to get the WPs and stuff. :)

    I've been gone for a while (have long since been purged from NICE), but have some free time over Christmas and was thinking of jumping back in. Anyone able to throw me an invite back in to the guild? Name is Kass.3504.

    The collaborative development thread for Horizontal Progression is up now! This includes stuff like new skills/traits, appearance customization, collectibles, etc.

    The chart auto-updates, so the market has since adjusted.

    However, you could make between 1.5 and 2.5g per skill point for a couple of hours yesterday, turning t1 cloth into t2.

    It's likely to happen again though; the way drops work, players will have a hard time farming for low level cloth on their mains.

    FYI Jute -> Wool is back up to over 1.25G per skill point at the time of this post.

  • EnigEnig a.k.a. Ansatz Registered User regular
    Not seeing it. Does the market adjust that fast or am I missing something?

    A certain Asuran Necromancer got me an A-MAH-ZING portrait of me with Eternity for Xmas. It's so badass and also historically accurate. =)

    I'm completely green to this game. I had been interested in it for a long time, but never had the chance to get it, but I picked it up last night. So far so good. I started a Charr warrior and then decided to try a Nord warrior. I'm not sure which one I want to keep. Any helpful beginner tips?

    Also, could I get a guild invite? phekno.5098 is my display name.

    Don't rush. Enjoy the game. Everything gives you xp..... so just drink it in. Sell everything you get mats wise (there is a deposit collectibles button to help you determine what is worth selling). Upgrade to a full set of green armor on the ah every 8-10 levels. Its cheap. Crafting as you level is very hard and expensive.

    Do WvW with us. We make it 10 x more fun than normal and the rewards are some of the cheapest ways to gear at level 80. You can come at any level - it scales you.

    Invite sent.

    And my brother will receive this as a gift from me tonight so he will guild join too.

    For those of you who know what Starbound is - someone modded Twilight into the game.



    They're working on Sunrise presently.

    Molten variables hiss and roar. On my mind-forge, I hammer them into the greatsword Epistemology. Many are my foes this night.

    You should come back. 3 patches ago it became a pony simulator. Its all about hay and fancy brushes and prancing. The main currency is now sparkles. You have a lot to learn.

    or in the real world - the game has been getting better all the time and it started great. We would love to have you back.

    I might take a little longer. Had to reformat my main hard drive over Christmas, which was where GW2 was installed at... and my cheap-ass internet service never goes higher than ~750 kb/s for downloads >_<

    Well, this sucks. I can't find my serial code, nor can I remember my password. So, I'm hoping support can reset things for me, otherwise I can't play. :(

    They tend to be pretty good about this sort of thing, out of curiosity... Where did you buy it? Online? A receipt helps.

    Yeah, I'm in contact with them, but they're asking me questions I don't have the answer to, like what my display name is. I don't friggin' know, it's been like a year!

    I tried trolling through the old threads to see if I posted it anywhere, but couldn't find it. Ah well, they'll either unlock it for me or not, it's up to them at this point.

    Your name isn't in an e-mail? Or did you just flat-out delete everything connected to gw2? I mean, without any kind of identification they won't be able to help you.

    This is where we shall tabulate the Sparkles. I have it sorted by number of Sparkles, so we always know who's on top of the Sparkle Leaderboard.

    YES. THIS IS A THING.

    What are Sparkles good for, you ask?


    FABULOUS PRIZES.
